Subject: The long and the short of it
The short of it: Above average recording of an average (by 1974 standards) show. There are better shows this year, there are certainly worse.
Subject: China Doll doesn't download
BTW, the lack of lossless whole show zipped files means for me that I am picking and choosing what to download, so I'm avoiding the whole pre-WRS first set.
Edited: The Playin' disappointed - NOT!!!!!!!!!
46 minutes of swirling, sometimes maniacal, always spellbinding music.
The sound is unbelievably clear for an audience tape - many soundboards aren't this crispy. You only hear the audience at the beginnings and ends of songs. They must have been utterly blown away by the Playin'.
And China Doll downloaded fine just now. Yeah!!!
Subject: Great show
Subject: wall of sound
Not much into statistics, but this has to be one of the longest versions of Playing in the Band...
Subject: audience devotional indeed
what i mean by the last thing is that one can sense the hall, the space of the place and the way the sound filled it from this recording. every audience (even the early crud aud tape of miami jai-lai i first acquired in '85) recording from '74 confirms that the wall of sound was the bomb. as the gentle coda vocals of china doll wind down, one can hear bill's high hat snap shut with precision!!! oh, to have been there, been turned on and seen that.
do your ears a favor. had we more auds like this, no one would be complaining much about the boards being pulled.
i see no reason why not to give this one five stars.
Subject: Rockin Playin in the Band
One of the best Playing in the Band's in my opinion. The first three minutes just make you wanna dance!
